Sunday Salon: A Theory of Everything Else: Essays by Laura Pedersen


A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles

March 26, 2019, Penguin

This, for a book club meeting early August. A reader on FB admitted to reading the novel four times!  I might go for three, but I doubt four times!

Books to be finished

I have too many of these. I must be having attention deficit when it comes to reading, as I'm tempted by new Netgalley and Kindle Unlimited books very quickly. And I'm not always in the mood for a specific genre. How about you?

In A Theory of Everything Else, Pedersen vividly demonstrates how life can appear to grind us down while it’s actually polishing us up―and why everyone wants to live a long time but no one wants to grow old. (publisher)

What are you reading this week?

  1. I have to be careful on Netgalley or I will choose more books than I can get to in a month.

  2. I am also tempted by books...and then many of them languish on my Kindle or my shelves. Sigh.

    I like the look of your book this week. Thanks for sharing.

  3. A Theory for Everything Else sounds like a promising read. It would be good to think that I'm not really getting worn down, but instead I'm getting polished up. An analogy that would be good for my husband, a gemcutter.

    I suggested Gentleman in Moscow for our book club, but the others thought it might be too long. I think it would be a book they would love honestly, if they could get past the length.

    I'm reading constantly these days, but most of what I'm reading I'm not really enjoying. Go figure!

    Have a good week and take care.

  4. Netgalley is a dangerous place, it should come with a warning!!

  5. I just got a book haul from the library with fourteen books, some poetry, memoirs, YA, fiction, nonfiction. I thought I should start with the books least likely to be renewed, but nope, I was more attracted to others. Who knows what ones taste in books will be on a given day? My Sunday Salon post where I try to focus on stuff I think is good news

  6. Yes, there are so many tempting books! I'm in the middle of three right now. Hoping to finish them this week.

  7. Netgalley temptingly dangerous but why not. Live a little dangerously.

  8. I do relate to the essay theme,I don’t like this getting older stuff much

    Wishing you a great reading week

  9. I can resist everything but temptation! A Theory for Everything Else looks really interesting, I'd like to check it out. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Thanks for sharing your books this week. Have a good reading week.

  11. I tend to be a sort of obsessive reader. If I start a series, I want to read all of it before moving on to something else. The problem is that the series I'm reading right now has more than 20 very long books in it and I'm just about in the middle of the series. Come see my week here. Happy reading!


I love getting comments and your thoughts...

Thank heavens for our library system which seems to have almost all the books I request, and many that are new to me as well.  The It Girl  ...
